We’ve had time to come to terms with the split, which happened last March when the married pair made a decision to undergo ‘conscious uncoupling’. But it doesn’t make it any less shocking when those divorce papers are actually filed.
TMZ reports that the former couple are currently waiting for the divorce paperwork to be signed by a judge next week, now that their business reps have sorted out property and finance issues.
We’d kind of thought that ‘conscious uncoupling’ might have meant that the door was left open for a future reconciliation between the A-list pair. But this news has put a massive stop to that dream. *Sob*.
Gwyneth and Chris called it quits after ten years of marriage and two children together – daughter Apple and son Moses – but have done a pretty superb job of staying friends since.
Despite rumours that the Coldplay frontman had moved on with Jennifer Lawrence, him and Gwynny were spotted on holiday together in Mexico just last month looking happy and amicable. We’d say that’s impressive work for two exes.
‘This is a natural evolution for Gwyneth and Chris as friends and as a couple,’ a source recently told PEOPLE.
‘They remain close, and they remain totally committed to Apple and Moses – as they find their way forward as individuals, they will naturally be more public about seeing other people, if not showy about it.’
